What we do at HYPER JAPAN Online 2021
In her workshop, REIKA will show you how to make a Kimono Jacket – Haori (羽織) – that anyone can make. For Kimono making, you do not need any pattern paper. REIKA will start the class from cutting a fabric together. If you have a sewing machine, you can finish your own jacket by the end of the class or you can hand sew it in your own time after the class. If you would rather want to watch how it is made, that is absolutely fine, too. Join REIKA to find out how to make a traditional Japanese costume!
Date: 31 July 2021, Saturday
Time: 13:00 – 14:30 (BST) including Q&A session at the end
Ticket Price: £18
Suitable For: Beginners and anyone who is keen to participate or to watch how it is made.
Note: This class will be taught in Japanese with an interpreter in English.
